    The Church of Santa Margherita is one of the smallest and poorest churches in the historic centre of Florence. Became famous because it was her that developed the platonic love of the poet Dante Alighieri by Beatrice Portinari. She went to church with his mother every morning and he was at the same time and kept hidden from the outside looking for her, super in love. But, as they were only children, it wasn't on. There are the remains of her father. It is not known whether it is true that the remains of it are there, though a gravestone say Yes. The Church is very simple, but by history.

    Lovely little church. Quiet and atmospheric, though simplistic. At the left wall as you enter there is a basket just under the shrine for Beatrice. Here visitors can plead in writing to ask her to fix...  more »

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
